The New York Times  today on a new show by tightrope artist Philippe Petit—

“He comes out of that really wonderful European tradition of street performance— it blends a boundary of what’s art and what’s life,” said Jay Wegman, the director of the Abrons Arts Center, who offered Mr. Petit the three-night run. “He’s also kind of mischievous, not in a threatening or evil way, but in a child’s way of teasing and having fun.”

For a much darker approach to street performance that also involves mischief and blended boundaries, see "Tightrope" (1984)—


Background: Men in Feminism , edited by Alice Jardine and
published by Taylor & Francis in 1987, "Walking the Tightrope
of Feminism and Male Desire," by Judith Mayne, page 64
